This is it, you've finally met the one you want to spend the rest of your life with and you're ready to pop the question. You may be feeling a combination of excitement and nerves at the thought of asking that special someone in your life to marry you. The good news is that with a plan of how you're going to do it and some practice going over what you're going to say, you should be able to deliver your proposal without a hitch. 

When you begin planning your proposal, consider what type of person your partner is. Do they appreciate elaborate gestures or do they prefer more intimate ones? No matter what type of proposal you plan, remember that it should come from the heart and you should make sure to let your partner know exactly how much they mean to you. 

If you're unsure about how to go about planning a proposal and need some inspiration, here are 10 unforgettable wedding proposal ideas to help get you started: 

  1. Garden Proposal: If you're looking for a beautiful location to propose, plan to ask your partner to marry you in a garden when everything is in bloom. 

  2. Holiday Light Proposal: Planning to propose over the holidays? Decorate your front yard with holiday lights and have your partner drive by to check out your light display. As they're driving up to see your work, stand in front of your holiday light show with a ring in your hand. 

  3. Beach Proposal: The beach is another beautiful location to propose. Arrange for a private dinner for you and your sweetie beachside, then when the moment is right,  propose. 

  4. Romantic Helicopter Ride Proposal: Go on a scenic helicopter ride and at the end of the aerial ride have the words, "Will you marry me" spelled out in rocks or with some other material you can easily view from above. 

  5. Sunrise Proposal: Go on a special sunrise hike with a beautiful outlook at the end. When you reach the end of the hiking trail surprise your partner by asking them to marry you as you both look out onto a beautiful sunrise. 

  6. Dessert Proposal: Put together a gift basket filled with your partner's favorite delicious treats and hide the ring at the bottom of the basket underneath the array of desserts. When your partner finds it, it'll make for a sweet surprise.

  7. Sports Proposal: If you and your partner enjoy sports, plan to propose at a sporting event. You can hide the ring inside the bottom of a crackerjack box before you get there. When your partner finds it, bend down on one knee and propose.

  8. Billboard Proposal: If public displays of affection are your thing, then ask your partner to marry you by writing it on a billboard for the world to see. When your partner is pulling up to meet you for a romantic dinner, they'll see your billboard proposal and you waiting below with a ring. 

  9. Iconic Landmark Proposal: Consider planning a proposal at an iconic landmark or a tall building with an observation deck. While you and your partner are enjoying sweeping views make that your moment to propose.  

  10. Flower Proposal: Create the ultimate romantic setting by arranging flower petals and candles in a heart shape display with the words, "marry me" spelled out on the inside.

No matter how you decide to pop the question you can make your proposal memorable for years to come by having your proposal photographed. Before the big event, be sure to arrange enough storage for pictures though, because you're bound to have more than a few photos of this special event.
